A traditional funeral service consists of a time for a private or public viewing of the deceased, a funeral service to remember and honor them, followed by a procession to the cemetery for a graveside ceremony to formally say goodbye. There are numerous variations by which to specifically tailor a funeral service to respect the wishes of your loved one and your family. How are cremation services different from burial services? They are not necessarily. Services with cremation are the same as with earth burial, unless you prefer something different. You can have viewing and visitation arrangements, with an open or closed casket, or no casket at all, for as long or as short a period as you wish. Whatever you choose – casket and burial or cremation – family and friends need time to grieve and to say good-bye. This is the reason for funeral services – to support the living through the pain and loneliness of loss to acceptance and resolution.. • Funeral Services
